Hotel & Catering Apprenticeship Programmes

Our family-run luxury hotel group has been a leader in west country hospitality for many years and we are proud to offer a range of academy programmes for young people in Devon and Cornwall aged 16-24 with level 2 and 3 courses available. 

Our training academy provides paid training places to young people from our local area who have a passion for the hospitality industry. Apprentices can earn an income while acquiring valuable new skills, working within our expert team of 1100 staff. Our apprenticeships will develop your skills in key areas such as customer service, food and drink service and food preparation. Apprentices also have the opportunity to learn their trade and gain accredited qualifications, under the close guidance of our managers and our training provider, HIT Training. 

Inspiring our leaders of tomorrow

We believe in inspiring leaders for the future in the hospitality industry. It is hugely rewarding and satisfying work, and every day brings a fresh challenge! 

As a family business, we value our employees and encourage them to stay long term. We have always taken great pride in training and developing our staff from within. Our aim is to become a beacon of industry excellence in all aspects of the hospitality industry.

Our Academy Programmes also provide a number of opportunities for progression within the company. 

We always welcome more aspirational young people to share our passion. We want to encourage them, teach them important new skills and help to create the leaders for tomorrow. Whether this is in the form of hands-on experience throughout our portfolio of hotels or a formal qualification through our Management Academy programme, there are a number of opportunities for progression within the company for our level 2 and 3 apprenticeships.
